      My questions will now be put to the test thanks to the submission of your thread timba!

      Will the competition's voting system be called into question? Will the merits of the award be called into question? Will individuals cite every reason imaginable as to why this award should not count? Or will it be accepted at face value because Disney won and per the article has won in the past as well?
      To answer your questions
      Yes
      Yes
      Yes
      And Maybe,
      I hate to say it but in MY HONEST OPINION Toy Story MIDWAY Mania really dosn't deserve anything.
      It LOOKS fun and all but I havent rode it yet but from everything I have seen it looks to me like a copy paste BLAB for the other park with little improvements added to it.
      and thats it, I Did not like BLAB I thought it was boring and less than disney standards and I look at midway mania as more of the same. I mean how many Toy Story Shooting game rides can they make? I think the award is bogus at best and paid for at worst. My 2 cents

        DHS = teenager...

        no, this "shy kid" has won awards before. see below.

        yes, the Animation Building and Soarin' Over California at DCA have both won THEA awards in the past.

          Regardless of whether you think this ride deserves an award or not, it seems rather unfair to judge an attraction that you have never ridden.

              And the comedy of this is that there were PLENTY of posts in the thread cited of people coming down on "winners" without having ridden them. All at the defense of Disney.

                I agree with your premise, people are overly defensive of Disney when they don't place high in surveys and awards. I personally think the awards all have some merit, it's easy to pick them apart, but for the most part I agree with them. I think some of the rides and parks that have beat Disney were better in those particular aspects. Few parks compare well overall to DL, but there are a few that aren't far off, and better then many of Disney's parks if you looked at them as stand alone.

                I think TSMM probably was the most innovative and interesting attraction of the year. I don't think it's a great attraction, but it probably deserved the award nonetheless, at least just for its technical achievements and broad appeal.

                  You know what, as much as I hate traipsing over to DCA to wait 45 minutes in that line... It really, really deserves it. Every time I disembark I'm kind of blown away by how totally solid the entire experience is. I think Disney has settled for Good Enough a lot in DCA, and TSMM is probably my favorite ride in the resort since Indy.

                    Then that was unfair of those posts as well.
